Slapstick or Lonesome No More; Kurt Vonnegut
Manhattan has become the Island of Death.
The former President of the United States stands barefoot in a purple toga around a cooking fire in the lobby of the Empire State Building.
He is Dr Wilbur Daffodil-II Swain and Slapstick or Lonesome No More! is his story - one of monstrous twins, orgies, revenge, golf, Utopian schemes, and very little tooth brushing. In this post-apocalyptic black comedy - dedicated to Laurel and Hardy - Vonnegut is at his most hilarious, grotesque, and personal.
